I love matte liquid lipsticks so I was excited to be sent one to try out for Superdrug’s Blog Squad. The lipstick today is by e.l.f which admittedly is a brand I haven’t tried out all that much in the past. The shade I was sent is a gorgeous deep nude called Praline.
e.l.f’s packaging is pretty basic and generally the same for each item. From first impressions of the liquid lipstick I was quite surprised at how large the applicator is in comparisons to other brands.
I have found it quite hard to apply due to the size of the applicator and without a lip liner as I cant seem to get it neat around the lip line. I do absolutely love the colour though its just a shame its a bit awkward to use.
The colour is very similar to the shades in the new Revolution Nudes Collection: On Display and Stripped Liquid Lipsticks. e.l.f Praline retails for £6 whereas Revolutions retails for £3.
It is definitely not a long lasting liquid lipstick and does need touching up throughout the day but with that said I don’t think you can complain really for the price. Whilst I don’t hate the product I don’t love it either.
e.l.f makeup is cruelty free and suitable for Vegans.
Revolution formally known as Makeup Revolution has launched a brand new nudes lip collection consisting of four mattes, four metallics and four glosses. This review is about two of the new matte shades.
I love nude liquid lipsticks with a matte finish so I opted for On Display and Stripped although all of the shades do look stunning.
All of the shades cost £3 each! I’ve always loved that Revolution is so affordable and offer good quality products for such a low cost.
I love both of these shades and can’t decide which one I prefer, Stripped is a softer brown nude whereas On Display is deeper and has more of a burnt orange undertone on me.
They haven’t dried down fully on my swatches but they don’t take too long to do so either. If you have dry lips then it will pick up on these areas, however, it is comfortable on the lips and doesn’t feel too drying.
The applicators are so easy to use, especially if you aren’t using a lip liner! The shape is different to the previous liquid lipsticks in the lip kits but I much prefer the newer wands.
Overall I’m really pleased with the longevity of these lipsticks, they just don’t budge! They are super affordable, pigmented and come in a great range of shades and finishes. I much prefer this newer range of liquid lipsticks formula over previous ones produced by Makeup Revolution.
